    Would it be possible for you to add the Landford WI group to your index please’

    • John Martin Says:

      Dear Shirley, Many thanks for your enquiry. I assume you would like us to add a page to the website dedicated to the WI. That’s easy to do. What would you like to be displayed on that page? Suggest contact details, details of where you meet, and possibly your programme of events for 2012.

    I found my Landford Local Directory halfway up my drive, soaking wet and ruined. Who should I contact to complain about the delivery and to get a new copy?

      I understand that there are no plans for a Scarecrow Competition in Landford this year (2012), but discussions are being held regarding the possibility of holding a Scarecrow Competition in 2013. Regards Merv Quick

    Hi, I think it would be good if you could link your website to Nomansland Sports Association’s site “www.nomansland-sa.org.uk”. There is a link from their website to yours already. It all helps people find the services they need locally.
    Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Hi, some time ago I came across a PDF page which was very useful for my family history research, and linked to it on some of the profiles. Unfortunately it seems to have disappeared, not archived, and I wondered if it is still available somewhere?
    The URL was: https://landfordjohnmartin.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/landford-a-collective-history-appendix-1-families-of-landford.pdf

    • John Martin Says:

      Hi Melanie, I revised the History of Landford files and set them up on a new website with the address http://www.landfordhistory.wordpress.com and thought I had correctly cross-referenced them properly, but apparently not on this site. I am still adding family information regarding the Eyre’s and their associated families and will put up the revised files soon, but I won’t be changing the site web address! Glad you have found something useful and wish you all the best with your family searches. Regards, John

      • Melanie Smith Says:

        Hi John
        Thanks very much for this. I am descended from Nelsons, Boltons and Girdlestones, so your info was very useful in providing some details of some of those! (I have some further info on some later descendants of some of them, if you are interested and wish to PM me.)
        Kind regards,
